Rhydon (Japaneseサイドン Sidon) is a dual-type Ground/Rock Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Rhyhorn starting at level 42 and evolves into Rhyperior when traded holding a Protector.

Biology

 
Rhydon surfing

Rhydon is a large, gray, bipedal Pokémon with features of both dinosaurs and rhinoceroses. It has a cream-colored, drill-like horn on its snout, the female having a smaller horn than the male. There are other protrusions on the head as well, including a spike curving forward from the middle of its head, two triangular, points resembling ears to the sides, a wide, wavy crest under the ears, and spiky ridges on its cheeks. It has red eyes and two fangs protruding from its upper jaw. It has a cream-colored stomach and a row of spikes down its back. Rhydon has a long tail with skinny, black stripes.

Rhydon is a physically powerful Pokémon. It is recorded as being able to topple buildings with a sweeping blow of its tail, and its horn is able to bore through solid rock and shatter diamonds. Rhydon is protected from heat and physical blows by its armor-like hide. It is stated to be capable of passing unscathed through streams of magma and withstanding a direct blow from a cannonball without being harmed. However, because of this tough hide, it is insensitive. Rhydon has a well-developed brain, but can also be forgetful. It lives in rough terrain.

Major appearances

Rhydon's first major role was in Riddle Me This, being one of Blaine's Pokémon. Blaine used a Rhydon against Ash during the first battle for Ash's Volcano Badge. While normally tough against electric attacks, Rhydon was defeated when Ash's Pikachu struck Rhydon's horn, which acted like a lightning rod. It reappeared in a flashback in Volcanic Panic and Bad to the Bone.

Giovanni owns a Rhydon that he loaned to Jessie and James in The Battle of the Badge.

Giant Rhydon were seen on Fairchild Island in Bound For Trouble.

Right on, Rhydon! featured a Rhydon that knew Surf. It was eventually caught by Pietra.

Ash's Pikachu and Paul's Chimchar battled against a Rhydon and a Magmar in the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition in Tag! We're It...!.

In Bibarel Gnaws Best!, the head engineer owned a Rhydon.

EP058 Rhydon Ash's Pokédex Rhydon, the evolved form of Rhyhorn. It is known as the Drill Pokémon. Its large horn gives it formidable attack power.
This concludes the entries from the original series.
 
Rhydon in Pokémon Origins
 
Rhydon in Pokémon Generations

In Pokémon Origins

Giovanni used a Rhydon in File 3: Giovanni to battle against Red's Charizard and lost.

Blue's Rhydon was briefly seen in File 4: Charizard where it battled Red's Lapras and lost.

In Pokémon Generations

Blue owns a Rhydon, which appeared in The Challenger. He used it during his Pokémon League battle against Agatha, where it was seen taking on her Arbok and Gengar. It managed to defeat Arbok, but it's unclear if it won against Gengar too or not.

In the manga

Rhydon in Pokémon Adventures

In Rock, Paper...ScizorBlue captures a Rhydon outside the Viridian Gym. He uses it to defeat Chuck in Heckled by Hitmontop, as well as Orm in Don't Doubt Deoxys. Near the end of the FireRed and LeafGreen saga, Blue remarks on a footnote Giovanni included in his handbook: Rhydon possibly possessed a stronger form. This is a reference to Rhydon's new evolution, Rhyperior, an evolution that succeeded in occurring thanks to Silver's knowledge of Pokémon trading, resulting in the same Rhydon, as Rhyperior, being on hand with him until being returned to Blue later on.

Rhydon debuts in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in its own round, Raging Rhydon, as Koga's Pokémon that is forced to evolve by its Trainer with a mysterious injection, being the first evolution shown in the manga due to Red's Poliwhirl and Blue's Charmanderevolving off-screen at the time.

Later in Tauros the Tyrant, a Team Rocket Grunt used a Rhydon in an attempt to catch Green.

In A Tale of Ninetales, a wild Rhydon attacked two of Blue's fan girls.

Rhydon is later seen as one of Giovanni's Pokémon in Long Live the Nidoqueen!?, where it used Fissure to trap Red.

In How Do You Do, Sudowoodo? Gold encounters a wild Rhydon during his race with Whitney. The Rhydon in question was hunting down a Sudowoodo hiding from it, and kidnapped Whitney when she interfered with her Miltank, breaking her arm in the process. Gold tells Sudowoodo to stand up for itself and, with assistance from his billiard cue, helps Sudowoodo defeat the Rhydon with a strong punch to the gut.

In the Pokémon Zensho manga

Giovanni's Rhydon was Satoshi's opponent for his final Gym battle. It went up against his Charizard and was defeated.

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Giovanni's Rhydon was used in the Gym battle against Red in Get The Last Badge!!.

Trivia

 
Early sketches of Rhydon

Origin

It appears to draw much of its inspiration from a rhinoceros and some aspects of various dinosaurs, such as ceratopsids.

Name origin

Rhydon may be a combination of rhinoceros and donRhy may also derive from the igneous rock called rhyolite, alluding to Rhydon's Ground/Rock type combination. Don, from the Latin dominus, may emphasize Rhydon's being the final evolution of its line (pre-Generation IV), as it is a title akin to lord in several Romance languages-odon, ultimately from ὀδούς, the ancient Greek word for tooth, is a suffix commonly used in dinosaur names, and so Rhydon's name could be a reference to those prehistoric creatures as well.

Sidon is a combination of 犀 sai (rhinoceros) and don.
